On 09/03/08 I brought my car to a Chevy dealer for noisy lifters, they replaced the rocker arms at the #8 cylinder which made the lifter noise not as loud. On 11/07/08 as I got onto the thruway, I accelerated in second gear to get into the flow of traffic, I pushed in the clutch to shift into third gear. As I released the clutch with no throttle applied, the car began to shake very badly. I then pushed the clutch pedal in looked at my gauges which were all dead. Then I looked into the rear view mirror and there was a large cloud of white smoke behind me. Then I had the car towed to the Chevy dealership and they called and informed me the next day that there was a hole in the engine block at the #8 cylinder. The dealership and GM refuse to repair the car under warranty stating that the car is used competitively of which it is not. I have found out that there have been many major engine failures with the Z06 corvette. GM has a program for 2007 and 2008 Z06 cars that have major engine failures where they send the car back to the factory where they repair or replace the engine. The document id # 2067130 and #pip4132B of which I have a copy of. If there was not a problem with these engines they would not have the program in place.
